    I think I would stick to an era,Example..... Like the 1970s, use 1960s cars or trucks. If you had a 90s model truck on a lot a 60s model would be vintage and usually not seen very much. You could have one fixed up like amature restored but I would try to keep to an era.

    Now for the smoke I would use cotton you have to experiment a little with it but it is doable.
    Small Used car lots in the 70s sometimes had flags hanging from poles and in between them light bulbs.GOOGLE IMAGE the era you want to model and then used car lot. Like (60s used cars) or (60s used car lots). I hope this may help.

    info needed on this model 52 plymouth wagon
    I got this in the other day from some pickers and was wondering who made this? Was this a promo or an addition to a smith miller truck or other company? This is about 1/25th scale plastic and the bottom looks to be glued on.

    I had a delivery of insulation out in the country somewhere in Montana.I drove off road for several hours dodging cows and even got horned by a bull on my trailer duals. I thought for sure I was lost and it was getting dark when just on the horizen I saw a bunch of lights. I arrived at a new camp of mobile homes and buildings. I was told to go to the top of the hill and they would instruct me where to go. I was then told at the top of the hill to turn around and back down the hill it was very muddy no road just a field. I said hey I will never be able to get out of here. They said we will bring a dozer in to pull you out. So when I got there some guys came and unloaded me by hand and they said can you get out? I told them I will try I flipped on the differential lock and was able to keep a even momentem and surprissing I made it out. Later I had to take the truck in for service in Oklahoma after it was serviced the mechanic proceeded to cus me out and said where have you had this truck? I spent 4 hrs just pressure washing the mud out of it so I could change the oil! It was a international 9670 cab over with wind skirts and the mud was 2ft deep behind the skirts.

    How long have you been modeling?
    I was just curious, how long have the members here been modeling?

    I will start with myself I have been modeling since i was 8yrs old I will be 50 this year.I remember I tried to get my dad to buy me a dremel then and the hobby shop owner said I could cut my fingers off with it. Sad to say I was about 14 before I could get the "old man " to get me one. I guess that makes me 42 years into it. My first kit was a 1/25th trike it had a chevy v8 with injection tubes, I am not too sure who made it. (I would like to know) I have dabeled in model railroads and all other sorts of kits. I guess I will be modeling as long as the Good Lord sees fit.

    Any way so much about me who has the most years modeling and the least?

    PULL THE SEATS OUT , TAKE THE CARPET TO A CAR WASH AND HIT IT WITH HIGH PRESSURE SOAP THEN RINSE. THEN HANG IT UP TO DRY. YOU MIGHT HAVE TO REPLACE THE PADDING AND IF THE CARS SEE IF THE CAR LEAKS ALL THAT HAD TO COME FROM SOMEWHERE.

    Very nice, Bet it took a long while on the wiring and plumbing. One question though what kind of camera did you use?
